some that come to, i have a hard time keeping the last four digits of my social straight....that;s a two-handful of shows my man and HEAVY on 80/81...

i do not mean this in a disingenous way at all... do you think 81 is the last great year?.....mind you i have been concentrating heavily on getting 68 - 72 striaght and really not listening to much else for the last 4-6 months....

i would say other than 77, most people on this site seem to mostly be into 80-83.....that has never been an era i found very interesting outside of the acoustic sets...maybe due to early exposure to DEAD SET/DEAD AHEAD ....

i am saving your recs for future ref, thanks.

BTW, the 7-10-81 eyes of the world has a VERY COOL JERRY SEGUE, i really like how he introduces the tune, SLIPPERY LIKE....but the TEMPO is just out of control, like he starts playing the riff and then everyone plays eyes AROUND IT...all the sudden they;'re goin MACH 10!

HL ... my heavy concentration on 80-81 is largely due to two reasons: 1) i've been listening to a lot of stuff from that era (and i would most certainly have included more from '82, but most of my AUD sources do not have links at LMA, which is a shame really, because as i mentioned in my original post, there are some incredible audience sourced shows that have come into existence since uploads were put a stop to), and 2) i don't know, but it seems to me that some of the more fantastic audience recordings came out of the years 79-82

the last great year? definitely everyone has their subjective opinion regarding this question, but for me it would have to be '82, which isn't to say that there aren't fantastic shows post-'82, because there are for sure, but i guess i haven't yet explored so much of that territory to make an informed opinion one way or the other; for one thing, the setlists don't quite do it for me as much, and truth be told, my years of choice would run as follows: 68 > 69 > early '70 > 72 > 73 > 79 > 81/82
